i so thoroughly enjoyed that, YOU HAVE NO IDEA! (or, maybe you do....)

that stationary shot, and the low quality aside, this is a great chance to see how jerry worked it, up close.... of all the video i've seen, it seems JERRY really gives it up on IKO.... he brings sucj honest and exuberant joy to the song. and he knows when he's giving it to ya too... he does those exclamation "points" at the crowd in the first verse and they go righteously nuts.... so he bides his time in the second verse, and then in the final round he gives another big effort and when he points again the place sounds like it's about to blow.

a great look at the dead at the height of PROFESSIONALISM with JERRY calling the shots from the hip. YESSSSSSSSSS!

BTW, many more songs from that show are up there: click it !

was 87 the year he stayed semi-sober and tried scuba diving for his high?

I dont think he was neccessarily sober this night.......Opiates?No...bit it looks like there might have been some pretty pure blow going on backstage.....Especially with the way Weir is doing that fruity macarena touch his elbows thing during the chorus.
